Punctuate the above.

I know I am late, but I havn't read any of the replies.

A woman. Without her, man is nothing.

OR
A woman, without her man, is nothing.
Both seem to be correct.

Heh, a local bookstore has a sign in the basement advertising (and I quote): "'Great' Bargains" and "'Huge' Selection".

I wanna sock that guy in the face. [shake head]

I had a coworker who did that routinely, and it always blew me away - boxes labelled: "Cat-5".

(Who knows what might be in there...Schrödinger, anyone?)

They might be quoting the sheathing of the cable [Wink] , I just hope there isn't five cats in the box. [Wink]

I dunno, they might be five cute cats :) Only trouble is I don't have enough legs.

Or five kittens =)

You know what I need to buy now, don't you.

That would be very odd... would that mean than on observation, two cats would die, two cats would be alive, and one cat would be half and half?

Of course, in a practical experiment the gas canister would mean that they'd all have to be the same state. But then, what does practicality have to do with quantum theory? </shameless self-link>
